issue is here the security of the compound. we know that the british ambassador, the united nations office and the red cross office in benghazi had been attacked recently, prior to the attack and the murder of our wonderful ambassador there. but the equivalent what have it costs to keep one member in afghanistan half a year is the protection we gave the consulate. who is to blame? i think the administration needs to take on board we are not protecting our warriors and our state department. but congress, since 2010, has cut our security funding for our emr embassies by 10 pmpls eric, you have had a lot of debates about cutting the military by sequester over 10 years, five time its longer, the 10% cut in the budget for security overseas is a responsibility of both ends of 1600. >> eric: admiral, are you saying that ambassador stevens and the others were killed because of the security at the compound? >> i think you have to say there is a direct link. but when you are cutting the security, why whereelse aren't we able to fund the measures? but, no. ic another legitimate issue is, how m
around the world, the united nations general assembly meeting in new york city in its second day. a hot button issue taking center stage. terrorism and how president obama is handling those threats. earlier he addressed the u.n. about the iranian government pursuit of nuclear arms. take a listen to what the president had to say. >> iranian government continues to prop up a dictator in damascus and support terrorist groups abroad. time and again it failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate its nuclear program is peacel and meet the obligations to the united nations. america wants to resolve the issue through diplomacy. we believe there is time and space to do so. melissa: does this help the president persuade the world that he is tough on terror? let's talk with someone who definitely is, new york city mayor rudy giuliani. what do you think of that? >> i thought president obama pursue basically failed policy from the day he got into office. he was telling us that four years ago we were going to pursue diplomacy. in that four years iran enriched-uranium three times more than when pres
is united nations and later in the general assembly the president will go down and deliver a speech. 10:00 a.m.. we have excerpts and he will say there are no words of excusing the killing of innocents and the attacks on the embassy. >> gretchen: ahmadinejad creating havoc in new york city. have you heard of a guy who can hymn here and go to the hotel and go to the un and speech gobbily goop and offensive to most people? so instead of announcing he flashed the peace sign and saying he want to wipe israel off of the map it is now eliminated. it is the same thing. >> brian: this is mitt romney. remember 60 minutes and they sat down half an hour one with scott pel yemitt cross. mitt romney noticed that the president of the united states when he talked about the uprisings in the middle east and killing in libya called it bumps in the road. the governor of massachusetts was aggressive. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, that was my reaction. we had an bass-- ambassor assassinated and 20,000 people killed in syria. and trouble in pakistan and iran is that m
the united nations general assembly in a just-released excerpt shows the president touching on the familiar theme which is preventing a nuclear iran, saying we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. richard roth is at the u.n. this morning for us. richard, good morning. much anticipation about the president's speech today. >> good morning, soledad. yes, president obama, as you mentioned, is going to be speaking about iran and other hot spots in the middle east. certainly we've seen huge stories developing in the last two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahma
spoke of the united nations general assembly. he talked about the progress of the afghan security forces and the continued violence in syria. this is 15 minutes. mr. president, ladies and gentlemen, as we speak today, the world is shaken by the fanatics who have committed acts against the face of over 1.5 billion muslims. we strongly condemn these offensive facts whether it is the production of the film, the publication of cartoons or indeed any other act of unsold and provocation. such acts can never be justified in a speech of expression. equally they cannot give a reason for the protest to be used to fight violence with terrible losses of innocent lives is a matter of concern the world remains by the occurrence of the violence, he tried and injustice. in particular, the phobia is a phenomena has coexistence among the cultures and civilizations. i call upon the leaders in the west, will both politicians and the media to confront the struggle in all but many forms and manifestations. it is incumbent upon us all to advance the cause of dialogue and cooperation despite the sources of prov
, one high-ranking republican wants u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice to step down. new york congressman peter king says rice is to be held account aable for her statements on the attack. here's what he told our wolf blitzer. >> i believe this was such a failure of foreign policy message and leadership. such a misstatement of the facts as known at the time and for her to go on all those showers and be misinforming the american people and our allies and countries around the world, to me, somebody has to pay the price first. we have so much things to go wrong and everyveryone forgets t it the next day. an american ambassador who was killed where by all the accumulation of evidence at the time the prezusumption had to b it was terrorism. it is definitivety terrorism, to say it was not terrorism at that time was a, to me, terrible mistake to make, whether it was intentionally or unintentionally and show the significance of that, i believe she should resign, yes. >> the white house is standing by ambassador rice. she said everything she said in that interview was cleared by i
.n. but he did not go so far to call the terror attacks, he did defend free speech before the united nations and when speaking on "the view", he talked about how we are going to hunt down those who did this. he will do everything to make sure that our embassies are protected. what are your thoughts? >> well, it would've been nice if he could've seen that the embassies were protected before it our ambassador was murdered. but i am for anything taught that obama does. but he has to live up to the words. i was actually struck by things he did not say in his speech. first of all, on free speech, it's fine to stand up and talk about free speech and the importance of americans with that. but the administration will not let our intelligence community use the word islamist terrorists in reports. if you notice, he dances around it. when it came to iran, he said, again, we will do whatever it takes. but he could not back him he could not bring himself to add, including military force to stop the nuclear program. so i think that although president obama is a great speaker, i think it was too weak at cr
, president obama steps on to the world stage today with a speech off to the united nations general assembly. >> he is expected to focus on the nuclear threat from iran and the wave of violence and unrest that has spread across the middle east. and the speech comes with exactly 42 days, six weeks, until election day. abc's jake tapper reports. >> reporter: as president obama arrived in new york city, mitt romney was focussed on comments the president made to "60 minutes" about whether recent events in the muslim world gave mr. obama pause about supporting the arab spring movements. the president said no. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that they're going to be bumped in the road. >> reporter: in colorado, the republican nominee berated the president accusing him of downplaying syria's threat. >> he said developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? we had a, we had an ambassador assassinated. >> reporter: the white house insisted the president was referring broadly to transformation in the region. >> there is a
obama addresses the united nations and has harsh words for one nation in particular. >> as usual, iran, the elephant in the room in that one. >>> plus also this morning, an emotional reunion. a woman who was nearly killed by an out-of-control car. look at the tape. the police officer who literally saved her life. they have been reunited. an incredible story. she is very lucky to be alive. look at that. how close that was. how tragic that could have been. >>> her life was changed. but her dreams remain. a paralyzed woman's vow to walk down the aisle for her wedding day. >> little bit of inspiration on a wednesday morning. great story. >>> first, we have been talking and the country talking about this suns mince monday night. the pressure to do something about the replacement refs. it all picked up steam after this call monday night giving seattle the highly doubtful, questionable, illegitimate victory. >> see one waving it off. one saying touchdown. now even the presidential candidates are weighing in on the issue. abc's karen travers joining us this morning with the very latest. hi, ka
obligations. now, ahmadinejad's will address the united nations and the world in a speech on wednesday. that happens to be the holiest day on the jewish calendar. prime minister netanyahu will take the podium the day after and he has been aggressive on the need to stop iran's nuclear ambition. he says iran will be 90% to a bomb in six months. a bomb he says will hurt america. >> all the things you see now in these mobs storming the american embassy is what you'll see in a regime with atomic bombs. you can't have people have atomic bombs. >> so, what's causing this escalation? two words. the united states. specifically the election battle between these two men. either mitt romney or barack obama will be the one to decide on the war or peace question. prime minister netanyahu seems to be betting on romney. romney has known him for 35 years. he visited him on the campaign trail in israel. and i even saw one of mitt romney's books on netanyahu's study shelf in jer use lem. he even appears in a pro romney ad in florida. >> the fact is, that every day that passes, iran gets closer and closer
that our 193 member at the united nations, there's only one member, iran, that is openly calling for the destruction of another member. israel. there's only one member openly denying the holocaust. there's only one member of the united nations that is constantly, habitually instigating violence all over the world, from latin america, through north africa all the way to central asia and certainly in the middle east. for all those reasons and many more, the world simply cannot and should not tolerate the very notion of iran becoming nuclear. >> do you ever feel conflicted when you look at iran, it has a jewish member of parliament, there's been a series on the holocaust, television series that aired in iran. there is a small jewish community there. do you ever feel conflicted at all in that sometimes their actions in that way, don't appear to be anti-jewish. >> i don't think the world has an issue with the iranian people. i think the world has an issue with the ongoing threat posed by the iranian leadership. i think what they're doing is irresponsible and reckless in the first plac
considering allowing the nation's tiniest apartment units idea driven by the city's tight pricey housing market. katie marzullo is live in the south of market area. hard to imagine, but you are going to show us how it looks. >> reporter: almost hard to imagine we'll show you the best we can. if you like behind us this building already houses microapartments. these units are 300 square feet. under the new rules apartments could be as small as 220 square feet. the size of an average parking space if you look at a box truck like that over size would not fit in an average space. imagine maybe living in the back of that truck. we have video of the inside of one of these microapartments done by a berkeley developer, you are looking at 150 square feet of living space plus bath, kitchen and closet brainchild of supervisor scott weiner he and proponents say it is the only affordable option for single people in the city making up 40% of the population, recents of a microapartment $1200 to $1700 a month versus more than $2,000, the current average price of a studio in san francisco. opponents say t
to the united nations, we're going to put foreign policy in the context of course the upcoming election. we'll talk iran and the new dynamics of the middle east with p.j. crowley former assistant secretary of state. and then we're only a little over a week before the first presidential debate so tonight in "the war room," we're going to do some debate prep with republican strategist mark mckinnon and democratic campaign veteran fowler. it will be a great hour for the political junkies out there right here in "the war room." you gotta tune in. >> eliot: we'll beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee our conversation is with you the viewer because we're independent. >>here's how you can connect with "viewpoint with eliot spitzer." >>questions, of course, need to be answered. >>we will not settle for the easy answers. >> eliot: when the only apparent consistency is the does not, well documented well representation of facts, you have a problem which is why mittt romney is shrinking. over the course of this campaign, he's dproan smaller. he and those arou
as israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu drew one before the united nations general assembly to represent the red line he wants for iran to end its nuclear program. iran's ambassador to the u.n. says he won't dignify it with a response. except to deny iran is trying to make a nuclear bomb. but president obama did respond. he and netanyahu spoke today over the telephone. cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty joining us from new york. jill, do we know what the president, president obama said to israeli prime minister? >> reporter: well, we do, fred. in fact, they issued this statement and you have to, as you're reading it, say, well, they certainly pulled that back on track because after all, you know, the president didn't meet one personally with the prime minister, and that was interpreted of course as a very cold shoulder. there was worry, though, that this was being exploited as, you know, criticism especially in this campaign as being a rift between the united states, and i should say at least present between president obama and israel so they had this telephone call. i shou
